The trick to shedding some of that excess weight you may be carrying lies in your diet. It all depends on what is on your plate, the more nutritious it is the better off you will be.
Nutrition and Wellness Educator with the Christian County U of I Extension Office Lisa Peterson sees the fad of cooking with extra virgin olive oil as that is the healthiest option, she admits this is true for the most part but if cooking with it you don't want to let it get too hot.
Peterson sees olive oil heavily in the Mediterranean diet which she recommends but if you hit that smoke point it will become rancid.
Peterson appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
